Good Morning?

*wakes up*

So this is what it’s like to be 40…

*looks around*

Fcuk it, I’m going back to bed 🙂

Das Weekend

In approximately 1.5 hours I will regretfully be out of my 30s. Yes, that day is almost here: I will be over the hill on Saturday. Yay.

As far as plans go, we really don’t have any. Every place is crowded for dinner so it’s not worth the effort–even if it’s my birthday. Instead we plan on heading down to Downtown Disney so that I can build a Build-A-Bear and perhaps get into Disneyland. I’m building a bear because I got a coupon in the mail the other day–a $12 value–as my birthday landed on President’s Day weekend this year. This is the first time in, well, ever that I can recall this being the case. In any event, we’re going to at least do that.

But we may not get into Disneyland for a few reasons. First, we’re blocked out on Saturdays but being it’s my birthday, I will get in free. The bad thing? I can’t claim the gift card that Annual Passholders get should their birthday fall on a non-blackout date (at least that’s the way I understand it) and because Ann and The Kid will still be blocked, they’d have to pay the $40 blackout fee to get in. Not worth it.

Second, it’s President’s Day weekend. It will probably be insanely busy. And third, there’s a chance of rain tomorrow so that pretty much seals our fate.

I also plan on eating a really big hamburger tomorrow. Yes, you heard me right–a hamburger. You see, tomorrow was the day I intended to be at my target weight and I hit that months ago. So being that I avoided hamburgers for nearly 3 years, it’s time to indulge a little bit, and Carl’s Jr. will be the place I do it. They’ve got a new burger called The Big Carl and I don’t care how many calories, how much fat, how many Weight Watchers Points the thing contains. I’m going to eat it all and I’m going to like it!

And for what it’s worth, here’s a recent picture of me in my size 48 Fat Guy Pants. People, I used to fill those pants–no shit.

I look pretty stoned or something in that “after” picture, don’t I? I don’t photograph well.

That’s all I got for tonight. See ya later…when I’m a hell of a lot older… 🙂

Just Amazing

I know I’ve posted a few pictures of the local snow in the past, but after the rain we had over the weekend and on Monday we had probably one of the most picturesque views of the mountains in…well, ever. 

I’m not saying that it was spectacular but let’s just say that I wasn’t the only one taking pictures of it from the train station. The wind blew away what was left of the clouds and we here in southern Californ-eye-ay, people accustomed to the mountains being obscured by the phenonmenon known as smog, were treated to this (click to embiggen):

After this I doubt I’ll post anymore shots of the local mountains as they simply will not get better than this.

And I keep hearing about this global warming stuff…

What Would You Say?

We were having a little fun at work with those Valentine candy hearts that have those sappy and often dated sentiments on them. Here are the results of just a few, taken with the Phone Cam:


We could have crafted even more of these things but stupid work kept getting in the way. So in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, head on over to this page, create a candy heart of your own and post a link to the image in the Comments section.

No rules on this one. Now get thinking and get busy!

Grammy Wrap-Up

The Grammys were last night and well…oh, who the fuck am I kidding? I didn’t bother watching much. What I did see was a bunch of people I’d never even heard of and one of the most over-hyped bands of all-time: Radiohead, who pulled Fleetwood Mac and played with the USC marching band. Call me weird but I don’t get the attraction. I really don’t.

Who (or what) is an Adele?

And is it me, or is Robert Plant looking more and more (an older version of) like Jeff Lebowski with each passing day?
